Best car racing game this gen that's not Gran Turismo?

Only one person mentioned a PGR. This topic should vomit on itself and die.

Edit: just read this part of the opening post: I prefer a good mix between arcade racing and simulation racing.

PGR 3&4 are exactly what you want.

Probably because they're on XBox 360 and all of the games the TC listed were for PS3? Though his backloggery does suggest he has a 360 so maybe it's a fair choice.



Though actually if he wants a Hybrid racer, Test Drive Unlimited could be a good choice. It's an open world racer similar to Midnight Club but unlike those games it has a good minimap that prevents the kind of guesswork that you would otherwise need to know where to go on any given track.

Guys, I do not own a 360 YET but will one day get one. I'm the type of gamer who plays games waaaaaay late. Don't have a lot of time to play lately, so going through my backlog is taking a long time. Will get a 360 for super cheap one day once the major price drops hit (I'm in no rush). Don't plan on getting a PS4, Durango, or Wii U. I have enough games to last me along time in my backlog.

As far as 360 is concerned, I DO own a couple 360 games right now only because I got them for super cheap - so I figured I'd pick 'em up at the time to play one day.

I will check out the Forza games and maybe PGR one day, but for now I only have a PS3.

GRID on PS3 is a front runner for me right now. But maybe I'll just get GRID 2 since it's coming out soon.

In that case I'm going to recommend the PS2 game ChoroQ. It's a hybrid racer set in a world of sentient cars. It has RPG elements, so as you progress through the storyline, win races, and do subquests you gradually acquire better parts for yourself that allow you to place better in even harder races.

It's very different from pretty much all other racing games out there, but it's like a $5 game and it takes like 50 hours for 100%, so the value is pretty much unbeatable in the genre.

I've been interested in the ChoroQ series for a long time but haven't played any of them yet. Is the PS2 version the best one for me to grab, or is the best the series have to offer maybe a Saturn, PS1, DC, or N64 ,[Penny Racers) version?

So I assume all of the votes for "Other" were by people going with Forza, but since that's not for PS3 you guys are idiots.



Doesn't specify what platform, then calls everyone who recommends this gens best racing game idiots.

Well done.

ChoroQ HG 2 was awesome (i think it was the second game)

the game after that, i didn't like as much because it wasn't an adventure format... you were limited to the rpg/adventure style within that city/area then you just swap between the area you want to go to
